What a ****in cluster of a game.
Fixing to let Davis pitch....

This is not a team poised to advance far into the post season. And yes I know what I said a week or so ago.

I'm afraid the Astros have peaked to early this year to advance in the play offs. SMH

Verlander has pitched one game. Went 6 and gave up a run. Astros won it 3-1. Verlander got the W.

Maybe he will stabilize the rest of the rotation some. That lineup is too stacked to stay cold for long. They just need the pitching to get right, and have a cornerstone stronger than Keuchel.

Yeh not sure what pitching staff he's watching but this one has no consistency whatsoever and some strike fear in the hearts of Astros fans when they get the call from the BP.

What a game for JV! A 1-hitter shutout! And what a save by the defense in the bottom of the 9th. That throw from Springer and tag by Correa was epic.

Cant remember the last time the phrases "one hit" and "one walk" were used in reference to Astros pitching.

Dang vaginitis. When i pitched everybody knew it. The dugout smelled like Icy Hot.

On second thought...they may be why i have tendonitis all the time 30 years later..

Color me excited. The bats aren't lively enough right now to keep up with the runs he will give up.

What's painful is taking a beating from a team that was 25 games out of 1st place, and the Astros are in first place. SMH

This team has scored 4 runs combined in the past 3 games.

The bats better wake up before the playoffs start or they will be out quickly.

Idk how we are to get through first round with this kind of play. And to have to face Cleveland in the second round? Forget about it. Somebody needs to get rid of FIERS and light a FIRE or season is over.

I don't understand the continual use of Fiers. The result is a known before the game starts. Causes one to question the management of the team. Also wonder why this team suddenly can no longer hit. Baffles the mind.

I have faith.
Too much talent on this team - they are getting beaten by much lesser teams - thats a heart and mind thing - which can be fixed and quickly turned around - not a skill thing.
one good series.. and maybe a quit-****in-with-the-lineup-when-its-working mentality can turn this around in a big *** hurry.

I have serious questions about the pitching going into post.... i'm actually quite scared of who might make it as opposed to who wont...

You guys think west coast games are bad, try being 6 more hours ahead for a week. I was waking up at 4am and watching the MLB at bat app. Finally heading home to see the clinch this weekend.
